The project is a private villa in Runze Shujun. GU Hao, the designer of this project, traces the origin of life by incorporating breathing and natural elements into his modernist space. He hopes that nature and artificiality c be perfectly integrate in this space.
According to the designer, design is an art, but not just an art. Design itself is rooted in life, but higher than life. And it should always reflect the material and technological level of its time, as well as be part of the change and development of social ideology.
Design is, in GU Hao’s opinion, both a way for us to talk to nature and to learn from nature. So that we can establish an emotional connection between human and nature. In the living room There are metope partition which is similar to organism in form and condole top that extends like cell. They symbolically trace the origin of life.
The design style in the overall space is very concise. The use of large area white in the space make the experience, emotion, thinking and memory of life being part of the space itself in order to make it a real place to live.
